    Last of us HBO series Will include apparently a Jaw dropping sequence which was omitted from the first game. Mazin begged druckman he could include it.
    So potentially taking between the first and second game, or a prequel to the story. Interesting.

    Hannibal is such an awesome TV experience. I'm kinda jealous at you two who are enjoying it for the first time.

    Just watched the first episode of Raised By Wolves. I’m liking what I’m seeing.

    Skitch, can you at least say watching Hannibal makes you want to cook?

    "Ragnar" seemed like an obvious weak link from the trailers alone, is he passable?

    I’m only one episode in, and he hasn’t had to do much heavy lifting yet. I knew he looked familiar, but I don’t think I even made it through one season of Vikings.

    I watched Season 1 of the BBC's His Dark Materials.

    Solid start, but overall just oddly structured. Major revelations happen within the first two episodes, there's no build-up whatsoever, it's got a lot of exposition, the alethiometer that Lyra uses feels more like a cheap ploy than this truly incredible thing which takes great skill to figure out, sometimes logic goes straight out the window (Lyra falls out of an air balloon that is hundreds of meters in the air, but she's fine)..

    The cast is great though, production design looks lovely and despite featuring kids and talking animals, there is a darkness there that I appreciated.

    A RoboCop prequel series without RoboCop focusing on the rise of Dick Jones at OmniCorp.

    That sounds about as appealing as a truck stop egg salad sandwich.

    I did too. It's awkward and cheesy as hell at times, but I'm loving it. Johnny's casual racism and sexism regularly has me in hysterics.

    I appreciated that the script is smart enough so that when Johnny pulls out his moves to defend a kid he nearly pulls a tendon. Love The short episode length also.

    Perfect analogy. One exception...if there will be experimental robots like the big bitch Robocop takes down in the first movie...before they decided to attempt a cyborg approach...there might be something entertaining there. But if its all humans then fuck off

    Or maybe, bear with me, by sticking to all humans they'll have no choice but to write interesting characters. Maybe a parable on corporate greed. And it would have to be set in the 70's/early 80's. How many shows have done that recently? To be honest, that's thin, Martin Riggs would say.

    So Emmy nominees had staff outside their homes in hazmat suits waiting for if they win the award. That's how they could have them in hand seconds later to give a speech or whatever.

    But if you didn't win...

    I enjoyed the first season. Haven't gotten around to picking it up again yet.

    It's a show that depends on not being spoiled, so nobody is rushing to openly discuss. I've left it somewhere in S1, didn't have time for it and it was kinda obvious where it was going, but with not much substance in characters without the plot drive.
